Transforming Education Financing in Africa

Transforming-Education-Flyer 2

The TaxEd Alliance and allies invite you to the virtual launch and collective discussion of the report: Transforming Education Financing in Africa: A Strategic Agenda for the African Union Year of Education. The report highlights the urgent need for African countries to strengthen sustainable, gender-responsive domestic financing for education by leveraging fair and progressive taxation, ending austerity and insistence on urgent debt relief and much needed reform to the global debt architecture.

This webinar will be an opportunity to share the report findings and explore strategies for coordinated national and Pan-African action on the key forces that impact education financing: tax, debt, and austerity.
The webinar is scheduled for Friday 12 April 2024, 12.30pm Nairobi (GMT +3), and will be in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. To join the discussion, register in advance here: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_04kyNYimQvSp5iUinPG8Hg. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

The report is available here in English. French, Portuguese and Spanish versions will be uploaded over the next few weeks.
